Release date- 17012014 - Imagine a device that could collect information from every gadget you own, creating a personal archive that stores everything from TV viewing habits to photos and even has the potential to link this data to emotions, telling us the patterns of what we have been doing when we are most happy.
Chelsea commented on her findings:
'The abundance of mobile and sensing devices, within our environment, has led to a society in which any object, embedded with sensors, is capable of providing us with information. A human digital memory, created with the data from these pervasive devices, produces a more dynamic and data rich memory. Information such as how you felt, where you were and the context of the environment can be established.'
'If you knew the features of being happy, then you could ask the algorithms to classify data accordingly. In the future you could simply ask, 'When have I been happy?' And the system would return all the information associated with that emotion.'
